|Ta-da!! Sprouted lentils...|
Once you've got them sprouted and cooked (if you want), you can add them to salads, sandwiches, soups, etc. They'll be a delicious and nutritious addition to many different meals! From what I've read on various websites including this one, they'll keep for about seven days in the refrigerator.
Also, if you decide to do some sprouting yourself, be very sure you keep rinsing them while you are waiting for the sprouts to get to the desired length. Fallon recommends rinsing at least twice a day but you can do more as well. The reason for rinsing is to prevent mould/slime growth. No one wants that! YUCK!!
So, while I wait for the kidney beans to sprout, I decided I would attempt to sprout quinoa as well. The process is fairly simple and hey, it results in a more nutritious and flavourful food! Sounds like a good deal to me.
Enjoy the weekend!!
